Congratulation to all our very close friends who rode and helped at QRF Today!
You all rode so well. I have attached the Final Results Score Sheet!
Kim Mayfield riding her rising 4 y/o Piko who boards here, was tied for first place in PBN Dressage 31.8 and ended up 4th with a steady but slower XC speed.
Katherine 9 and Luci 8 were neck and neck Tied Fifth after Pre BN stadium but Darcy’s longer legs moved Katherine up to second after Cross Country. I can’t believe how well these two young ladies have improved over the last few months, they are both amazing! So proud of you both!
Tara had an super 36.8 after dressage but retired later. You are an inspiration to us all, Tara!
Samantha Garbarino competed her lovely Sebastian and had a super first dressage test ever, and an exuberant SJ and XC rounds. He shows all the makings of a super talented eventer!
Jackie Spalding 9, jumped up to Jump Start and ended up in 4th Place after a great Horse Trials in which she has never ridden better! Way to go Max and Jackie!
Sherry Price had a super dressage test at Novice but it was not their day over fences. Better luck next time.
Jo Zemler had an excellent Novice dressage test but unfortunately thought that fence # 8 on Stadium was not on course for her division and received a technical elimination “TE” but was able to do a lovely cross country course afterwards.
Mahaley Gann on Queen of Spades (Kathy and Erin Roof’s mare) came in 4th in BN. Well done Mahaley you ride Belle so well!
